Updated in 2014, the New York City Fire Code is a City law that establishes fire safety requirements for buildings and businesses in New York City. It applies to all persons and places in New York City.
The Fire Code regulates such matters as emergency preparedness; the prevention and reporting of fires; the manufacture, storage, handling, use and transportation of hazardous materials and combustible materials; the conduct of various businesses and activities that pose fire hazards; and the design, installation, operation and maintenance of the buildings and premises that house such materials, businesses and activities.
Fire Code Chapters 1, 3 and 4 have been revised to reflect the amendments to Sections FC 105.6 and 310 enacted by Local Law No. 187 of 2017, effective April 17, 2018, and Section 105.4 enacted by Local Law No. 195 of 2018 effective June 1, 2019, and Section 406.2.3 enacted by Local Law No. 103 of 2019 effective October 6, 2019.
